Paul Heyman returned to WWE television during Friday Night SmackDown, and it was a big shock for everyone.

Click here for our complete coverage of WWE Friday Night SmackDown from this week.

Roman Reigns is now the new Paul Heyman guy. He will be the top heel on the blue brand. This will place Bray Wyatt and his Fiend in the top babyface position which was a plan first reported by Ringside News on July 21st.

Regarding Paul Heyman’s involvement, Ringside News was told “that was a complete surprise.” It was told to us by a member of the creative team with close knowledge of the situation that Heyman’s return “caught all of us off guard in the best possible way.”

It’s unknown if Paul Heyman will have anything to do with creative. He was fired as Executive Director of Raw in June and both writing teams were put under Bruce Prichard. Even before Heyman was Executive Director of Raw, he had a lot to do with Brock Lesnar’s storylines. It’s logical to assume that he will be as hands-on with Roman Reigns.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
